Can anyone ID this giant bee?

Just saw this solitary bee hanging around while I was building frames. Is it a bee?

Nice photo.

Not likely, it’s eyes, wings and antennae say wasp. Not sure what type though. It’s hairyness, yellow banded abdomen and black legs cross a lot off the list though…

Here are another two photos if that helps with the ID.

Nice catch Hibee! Here I was about to say it’s a wasp with a bee costume on for Halloween :ghost:
